    Default Predicted potential

    Some characters are predicted to have the potential to be very powerful in the future, an example would be Franklin Richards since he was a toddler.

    What other characters have been predicted to be much more powerful than they are now?

    Also, which characters have actually attained their predicted potential?

    There's been talk about Iceman being omega-level, but I don't really understand how or why.

    I know what you mean.

    For instance, in the old Marvel RPG game, while it is now quite old and wildly out of date, Iceman had low ice powers, like Remarkable, while Johnny Storm the Human Torch had Unearthly flame powers. If Iceman took a heat/flame blast, his icy form would melt away. Johnny's flame did not go out if he took an ice blast.

    If Bobby has all this potential, where was it? Where is it? How does it manifest?

    This could apply to a lot of Silver Age characters. Sue from the FF, Jean and Bobby from the X-Men, and Wanda from the Avengers. You could even make a case for someone like Wolverine whose healing factor got a drastic increase during the 90s and early 2000s.

    It's usually explained as a self esteem issue, which creates mental blocks that prevent him from using his powers to their full potential. When other characters have messed with his powers (it is unclear exactly how much of this was actually messing with the powers vs removing mental blocks) or taken control of his mind and used his powers, he was able to do some very impressive feats.
